Re: vacuum your systems -- keeping your system clean is a good idea, but 
using a vacuum can create static which can damage your machine's 
innards.  Best to buy a can of compressed air from your local 
electronics dealer, which will let you blow the dust ouf of your system 
without creating a static hazard while cleaning it.

Plus, you can use what's left over from the can of compressed air to 
freeze-dry warts off yourself and your friends and family!  What fun...
